Others argue that the use of poisonous substance is prohibited although it is not impure. Furthermore, the extraction of the venom usually involves the act of killing though there is prophetic text prohibits the bee killing and hence; this issue motivates the study to be carried out.Therefore,the study attempts to answer the following questions: Whether the bee venom is impure and its use is forbidden; and whetherthe bee venom is considered among the poisonous substances that the jurists prohibit their use, and whether the prohibition of bee killing falls within the context of prophetic ḥadīth.
